Correction...The Mac used to use the PowerPC chip, which I believe are 32-bit. They now use the G3 and G4 chips. These are 64-bit CPUs -----Original Message----- From: Steve Richter [mailto:srichter@AutoCoder.com] Sent: Thursday, December 27, 2001 4:23 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Trivia: Processor MHz I am not comparing systems, I am comparing the cpu's. Both the Mac and the iSeries use the PowerPc microprocessor. The Mac is 32 bit ( I guess ) and the iSeries is 64 bit. It is strong evidence to me that the iSeries could have a faster cpu if IBM would allow it to. No need to wait for Regatta.
